Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, Peter Sarsgaard, Dustin Hoffman and Sissy Spacek will star in Very Good Girls, a film that will be financed by Ealing Metro International and Prescience. They will shop the film here at Cannes. The film will be directed by Naomi Foner, who wrote the script. The film follows two teenage girls through a summer spent in New York City. After they graduate high school, each becomes determined to lose her virginity, and things get complicated when they fall for the same charismatic street artist.
The girls will be played by Fanning, who’s been working on the conclusion of the Twilight Saga films, and Olsen, who made a splash at Sundance as the star of Martha Marcy May Marlene. Gale Anne Hurd and Hawk Koch produce, and production starts in September. CAA put together the funding and is repping North American rights with Ealing Metro.
